Local Historical Resources

Local Resources 

Town records consist mostly of notes on each annual town meeting and the results of annual election to town office. Deeds, wills, and land records, if registered at all, are at the Suffolk County Clerk’s office in Riverhead. 

Much information is available through your local library and genealogical societies in your area of the country. You can order copies of federal censuses from most libraries in microform. Many people find it helpful to take a course in family history and learn how to use the Internet for family research. I hope your search is enjoyable and productive.
